M42 Ha with Telescope Live in Chile CHI-1

Free trial of Telescope Live using one-click imaging (basically piggybacking onto other observations). It’s really not the same as doing it yourself, with your own equipment, from you own garden, with all the challenges. But when the weather is dire – it’s fun! Advanced, full control of the telescopes costs A LOT more. though!
